Abstract:The purpose of the research was to evaluate an existing online Masters delivered through distributed, distance learning. Through the evaluation, the significance of technology tools, pedagogic strategies, and how they interact in distributed environments was addressed. Data were collected from student surveys, faculty surveys, student interviews, and student portfolios. The Empowerment Evaluation methodology was used to triangulate data collected from multiple stakeholders to lend credence to the conclusions made, which included: technology tools in distributed environments should appeal to multiple learning styles of students; appropriate strategies in distributed environments included: processing content, discussing content, problem-solving through collaboration, reflecting, and building a community of learning; tools and strategies complement each other; face-to-face interaction was significant; and the evaluation revealed the program met goals and objectives.
